HOPE is a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit events management organization that raises funds for community-based charities. HOPE's flagship Volleyball SummerFest event combines recreational volleyball with live rock entertainment. Each year, more than 25,000 players and spectators flock to Mooney's Bay Beach in Ottawa for the greatest summer party in the region. These participants have helped HOPE donate over $3.5 million in support of more than 100 local charities.
